Whoo-Hoo! Big Journalism Has Arrived

It's here! Andrew Breitbart's new website, Big Journalism. Oh my, are the Leftist loons gonna hate this one.

Here's an interview with Breitbart about the new site.

In a phone interview with Mediaite, Breitbart says that his new sites will continue to “fight the mainstream media – New York Times, Washington Post, LA Times, CBS, ABC, NBC, MSNBC, and CNN — who have repeatedly, and under the guise of objectivity and political neutrality, promoted a blatantly left-of-center, pro-Democratic party agenda.”

Big Journalism will be run by former Time Magazine staffer Michael Walsh, who is also a former journalism professor and film & television professor at Boston University. Walsh and Breitbart met at a casual gathering of like-minded people and hit it off. When Breitbart made the decision to launch a new site covering journalism, he says that Walsh was first person that came to his mind. The fact that Walsh is a media veteran going back to the early 70s didn’t hurt, he said.

“Big Journalism will be the go-to site for solidly backed-up stories, sharp points of view, and really great writing,” he said. “We are defenders of the First Amendment and resolute enemies of political correctness. That’s the key to the site’s philosophy.”

Michael Walsh introduces himself at Big Journalism: "Welcome to the Fight: We Are All Spartacus Now."

Update: Lies, shameless lies. For example, when Obama campaigned to have the "debates" about health care open and public--and instead has had locked door Democrat-only negotiations. "These negotiations will be on C-SPAN, uh, and so the public will be part of the conversation and we'll see the choices that are being made . . . . The American people will be able to watch these negotiations. . . . transparent and accountable to the American people." This is the kind of nonsense crap that has been ignored by the lamestream media that I hope Big Journalism will reveal. Karl Rove on Greta Van Susteran's show (see below) is kinder than I am. He declines to say Obama lied; instead, he says that Campaign Obama was "naive." I think he deliberately misled people about this, and in my world that's a lie.

Where can I buy the tee-shirt: "Joe Wilson was right!"

Then Karl Rove talks to Greta about Robert Gibbs and the ObamaTeam lies about transparency and the health care bill.

THE WORST White House press sec'y evah. Robert Gibbs: He never knows, he's never heard, he's always answered some question "yesterday," he's a nasty, arrogant, snotty mean little man--and I think he's exactly the face of ObamaTeam that they want to present to the media--"Here's what we think of you guys, deal with this weaselly little jerk every day."

Gibbs refused to answer any questions put to him about the broken C-SPAN promises by the White House.

GIBBS: Chip, we covered this yesterday and I would refer you to yesterday's transcript.

GIBBS: Dan asked me about the letter and I haven't read the letter. [Whenever was "I haven't done my homework" an excuse that is acceptible for anyone? This wouldn't work for somebody's 10-year-old kid trying to weasel out of his math homework, let alone the White House press sec'y. Yet Gibbs does this all the time.]

GIBBS: We had this discussion yesterday. I answered this yesterday. Is there anything --

QUESTION: But the President met with members of Congress in the meantime --

GIBBS: And he'll do so today.

QUESTION: -- and pressed them to --

GIBBS: Do you have another question?

Karl Rove goes crazy on Gibbs and the ObamaCare health care bill process on Greta. An appalling amount of arrogance. . . . Robert Gibbs thinks the American people . . . are stupid. This is insulting. . . . Robert Gibbs is basically telling the American people, 'You want an answer to that--drop dead. I'm not going to give you an answer.' . . . . The President has an obligation to shoot straight with us. . . . Who's writing this bill? Nobody knows. . . . The way this process has been handled has undermined people's confidence in the bill. . . . I gotta tell you, that [Gibbs in front of the White House Press Corps] was an astonishing performance. . . . that really was insulting and . . . dismissive.
